Well, actually I haven't seen it. When I wrote my vax emulator stuff
(~2 years ago) there were only a mac version of an vax emulator available,
and without source.
Looking at the evax source (a quick look) shows that:
- It's probably slower than what I wrote.
- It's not LP64 clean.
- Their licensing isn't OK for NetBSD.
